343 / Kyle Troyer: Postdigital Mishaps

Submission #343 | Kyle Troyer: Postdigital Mishaps — “The result is a project that remains sensible to computation as an inescapable part of our reality. It explores the irresponsibilities of photogrammetry, texture mapping, and insertion of materiality in today's postdigital world. It plays with the current recognition of our true state of the digital, and exaggerates it similar to how the Baroque interpreted the Renaissance. ​ Images of Borromini's San Carlo Quattro Fontane are photo-mapped in incorrect ways and given physical artifact to trace the consequences of the image's presence throughout the design.”

Submission #188 | Georgia Pogas: A Spectacular Spectacle is Spectacular — "Resilience is defined as a way to accommodate risk. In terms of a skate park, resiliency tends to be lacking, as it is rendered useless until touched by a skater. As soon as a skater touches an object in the site, it immediately becomes essential to the skater’s functionality. Without the skater, the park is reduced to a field of follies. To the bystander or the spectator, a skate park is difficult to navigate, therefore, it is deemed weak in nature. "
